This book traces some of the colonial, postcolonial, and postmodern complexities of psychoanalytical thought as it has been variously applied to Hinduism. From Girindrisekhar Bose's pioneering reflections on the Indian Oedipal wish and the colonial positioning of early psychoanalytic practice in India, to postcolonial cultural criticism and contemporary clinical case studies, the collection spans close to a century of creative, sometimes radical, and always controversial thought about the psychological and theoretical riches of Hinduism.
